Seems ok to me now.  Though will look into - it may just be a server issue.  If it continues though, we will look into further.

Zero problems on my end.

Could you guys please indicate which operating systems and browsers you are using,
the time of the incidents etc., as I'm going to start tracking problems and can use as
much data as possible.

It was early this morning PST when I had the white screen telling me that it could not access the data base while attempting to post comments on two separate occasions.  Reloading did not work in one instance so I used the back option to refresh the screen and proceed again with better results on the second attempt.  I should have copied the text on the screen but did not do so.  Shame on me.

And me, but not only when trying to post something, opening a page I get it and even just clicking on the link to the forum in the 'My Favorites' bar.  Sometimes it's intermitant with, 'Explorer can not open the page' message

Just got at least 4 of SMF errors in a row.  Last one was while trying to open this thread to report it. 

The Forums knows.....Hal, is that you?   ;D

Vista, Firefox- latest vers, Mornings and afternoons (USA time zone - Mountain)

Problem is intermittent, brick wall for 15 minutes then reasonable for 30, then an hour inaccessible, then a half ok.

Thanks guys.

My luck changed as I was getting the can't connect errors etc., and even lost the RSS feed.
Note folks that once again this is not an SMF forum software issue, it's a GoDaddy
server issue.
